The study analyzes the depiction of female characters in the (mostly American) cyberpunk SF. It is based on both the theoretical postulates of the genre that talk about the re-writing of SF literary stereotypes and about social and political radicalism, as well as on the analysis of the primary texts. A critical reading of these texts leads to the (not so surprising) conclusion that the typical cyberpunk hero is a male macho-hero, not a woman with a radically rewritten gender role. This fact brings up a question whether the theoretical premises of cyberpunk have remained unfullfiled or if they were actually directed against the feminist SF of the 70s and 80s. Another part of the study discusses of the definition of a cyberpunk in the sense of the contrast of the "Movement" vs. subgenre.
